TULFOW HPC and its GPU module was included in the 2017 release of TUFLOW (2017-09-AA and later). The TUFLOW SMS interface currently (Version 12.2) does not include the required user options to selected and run a HPC simulation. An updated version of SMS is due for release in mid 2018 with the required option, until then this tutorial will demonstrate how to use call HPC and it's GPU module via a manual work-around.

  1. Duplicate the simulation M01_2p5m_003. Rename the duplicate M01_2p5m_004.
